It deserves it's own thread.  Who's picked it up already, how is it?

I'm gonna wait a couple months.  My video game budget is kinda slim and my next purchase is Red Dead Redemption.  I'm really excited about it though.  It's been a long time coming.

Thats a shame.  Blizzard did with Starcraft what could have made the original Warcraft's unbelievably awesome.  They included a great story line.  So it was good RTS play, with an awesome single player mode.

Also found out that if you get the collectors edition of SC2, you also get a non-combat pet for all of your WoW characters on one account.

Another reason for me not to get it.  Got a couple of friends whose chops I bust because they buy the new pets and mounts everytime Blizzard releases it.

I have 1 pet.  Well...  5 actually.  And they're all combat pets for my Hunter.

I loved having a Rancor as a pet in SWG.

LOL!!! Wonder if they're going to do something like that for the new Star Wars MMO?

Played a few multi-player games today.  Man, I gotta get my groove back.  Three epic ass stompings did I receive.

Single player game is pretty fun though.  I kinda like non-linear campaigns like this.
